Sarah was our free spirit with an enormous heart and an endless desire to help others. She could always be seen with a smile on her face, share an infectious laugh to cheer you up or give a hug to make you feel loved.  We will always treasure Sarah’s beautiful smile, loving eyes and her deep heartfelt laughter.  Sarah’s fun sense of humour and her compassion and kindness towards others is a great loss.

A special Thank You to all the ICU Nurses, Doctors, Surgeons and auxiliary staff at Kingston General Hospital. Notably Dr. Gordon Boyd for his support and guidance throughout.  Also Michelle and Matt at Trillium Gift of Life for their assistance during the organ donation process.  Sarah was surrounded by those she loved most as she embarked on her next adventure.  May she find her peace and dance among the stars for eternity.  Friends are invited to call at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King Street East, Cobourg on Wednesday April 25th from 5-8 pm and to attend a celebration of life on Thursday April 26th from 6-9 pm at the Lions Community Centre, 157 Elgin Street East, Cobourg.

ROMANIUC, Anatole of Ottawa

Posted by on March 7, 2018

ROMANIUC, Anatole
February 28, 1924 – March 5, 2018


It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of Anatole, at home in Ottawa, after an incredibly rich and fortunate 94 year life.  He was the loving husband of Maria Romaniuc (nee Teofilovic), proud father of Lara (Paul Saurette) and Alex (Rachel Creane), and ecstatic ‘Koko’ to his grandson Belmont (or ‘Penchyk’ as he was fond of calling him) – who always inspired bursts of laughter from Anatole…and vice versa.
His life was truly an adventure from start to finish. Born in 1924 in Ukraine (in what was formerly Bessarabia and part of Romania), he not only lost his own father early in life, but was forced to flee across Europe during the second world war, an experience that included successfully escaping both the (precursor to) the KGB and the Gestapo (twice!) and being separated from his mother and sister for 16 years because of the war. 
 
Against all odds, he managed to pursue university studies at the University of Erlangen in Germany and the University of Leuven in Belgium where he earned a Ph.D in Economics. He also undertook post-graduate training in Paris and at Princeton University.
He began his career as a demographer in the Belgian Congo, as Chief of the Demography Bureau (1953 – 1961), where he led the first population census in that country. With the independence of the Democratic Republic of Congo he joined the University of Kinshasa as a researcher while continuing to serve the Congolese Central Government in his capacity as adviser on population to the Minister of Planning and Economic Coordination.
In 1961, he was recruited to Princeton as a research associate (leading him to learn his 6th language – English) and then, in 1964, decided to move to Canada because he found it a welcoming country while visiting for an academic conference.

In Canada, he pursued an academic career as Professor at the University of Ottawa and the University of Montreal. He occupied senior positions at Statistics Canada (1968-1993), including as Director of the Demography Division.

He was Fellow of the US Population Council (1961–62), President of the Federation of Canadian Demographers and a longstanding member of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population. He was honored for his many contributions to international and Canadian demography with a special issue of the Canadian Studies in Population.

In 1970, while in Montreal, he met and married his love, Maria. There they welcomed their son Alex.  Soon after, they made a permanent move to Ottawa, where they welcomed their daughter Lara and made their home for the next 46 years.
Anatole retired in 1993 after a long and illustrious career at StatsCan. Never one to ride off into the sunset, Anatole immediately took up a position as an adjunct professor at the University of Alberta and spent the next 20 years researching and publishing extensively – completing his final article less than a year before his death.
No matter how busy he was professionally, however, he always found time and energy to help and mentor all those around him. In fact, as his children can attest, no matter was too small for Anatole to offer some friendly advice – whether solicited or not.  As he used to say, you don’t have to ‘listen to me’, but you do have to listen to me ;)
 
We will always treasure our memories of his loving and generous spirit, as well as his ’never-say-die’ determination. 
 
Friends are invited to join the family on Sunday, March 11, 2018 anytime between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm for an informal reception to share memories of his life over refreshments at The Whelan Funeral Home515 Cooper St. (between Bay & Lyon), 613-233-1488. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the First Nations Child and Family Caring Centre https://fncaringsociety.com/donate.
